100,000 NYC Ballots Have to Be Re-Printed After Envelopes With Wrong Names, Addresses Mailed to Voters

Headlines Politics U.S.

Nearly 100,000 absentee ballots in New York City have to be re-printed and re-mailed after an original mailing had incorrect names and addresses printed on the ballot envelopes.

“It is essential that confidence be established in this process and that we make certain that all of the voters who potentially have a problem have a full and fair opportunity to remedy that problem,” said Michael Ryan, the executive director of the New York City Board of Elections, who pointed out that the problem was a “vendor error.”

Multiple voters in Brooklyn, NY, reported receiving mislabeled “official absentee ballot envelopes.” If a voter inserts their signed ballot into an envelope with an incorrect name or address, that ballot could be voided.

President Trump has been repeatedly criticized and even censored for pointing out voting by mail opens the process up to fraud and abuse.
